Hi,

I build my PC in November and it has been running great. The other day I came home from work to find that my PC was on a screen saying "The ME FW of system was found abnormal. It is recommended to re-install system BIOS by M-Flash to ensure normal system operation."

I hit F2 and resumed the computer resumed as normal load times and all. I restarted my PC and the same message appeared. I then entered the BIOS turning off the XMP settings when I exited the bios the screen went blank and I had to a hard shut down. After the hard shut down the message no longer showed up even after numerous restarts and the computer seems to be running as it should.

Specs:
i7-6700k @ 4.0ghz
16gb Corsair Vengeance LED 3200mhz
Asus 1080 GTX

I have not tried turning XMP back on, but would like to know what caused this message to appear months after building the PC.

Thanks,
Ray

Hi

Make sure to flash the BIOS to the latest version available on product page (search for it at www.msi.com ).

Errors are red, My screen is blue .I think I deleted, System32.
99% of issues would be solved if people would read the manual first.

I have never done this before, but what is the easiest/safest way to do it. I see there is a program under utilities that supposedly automatically updates it or would doing it from a USB stick be better?

Download the BIOS file, and extract/unzip it:
http://download.msi.com/bos_exe/7976v1H.zip

And the manual:
http://download.msi.com/archive/mnu_exe/M7976v1.0_EURO.zip

On Page 33 you have step-by-step instruction how to use MFlash to update BIOS. That is the easiest and official way.

PS: Can you please provide a photo of your RAM sticker? Something like this:
